Herne Bay Youth Football Club aims to offer children enjoyment, exercise and an opportunity to improve their playing ability. This is achieved in a safe and encouraging environment which is free from the pressure that a win at all costs approach brings. We strongly believe in the long-term development of children on and off the pitch.. At Herne Bay Youth Football Club managers and parents should promote fair play, respect and teamwork and show a good example to the children playing the game . We aim to build a sense of community spirit and teamwork through participation and social inclusion. We see success as children who have had the chance to make new friends, enjoy the game, feel part of a team and build much needed confidence. This will hopefully result in a lifelong love of the game and good memories of playing Youth football. In order to achieve these aims and continue to attract players, volunteers and sponsors we realise that the reputation of the Club is of the utmost importance. The good name of Herne Bay Youth Football Club is something to be proud of and it is the responsibility of all those associated with the Club to uphold the values that are so important to our continued success.
